across the northeast. new york, in terms of rain, by midday today, it really should be out of the picture. this is a quick mover, but in its wake it's going to be cold and windy. so any snow on the ground could start blowing on on the roadways and that will cause problems. keep that in mind and be sure to be safe on the roads. how much snow are we going to see? we could see six to 12 inches across the great lakes. but too warm for snow across the northeast corridor. all the kids at home are go, whoa! your travel today, boston and new york, certainly could see delays. moderate delays to heavy. memphis and dallas look pretty good right now. but if you are traveling to the northeast or the midwest, make sure that you're going to call ahead. philadelphia, again, moderate delays. same for you in chicago and portland and we'll keep you posted all of the travel and the weather delays that are out there. back to you. >> steve: thank you very much. i think it's interesting that you think kids across america who did not get snow with the storm sound like charlie brown's teacher, wa, wa, wa.
